College Football World Reacts To Jeff Brohm's Decision On The Louisville Job

Jeff Brohm

Scott Satterfield left the Louisville Cardinals on Monday to become the head football coach at the University of Cincinnati. 

Less than two days later, Louisville has reportedly found their next skipper in Purdue's Jeff Brohm. 

Brohm, a former quarterback and assistant coach for the Cardinals, has amassed a 66-44 record during head coaching stints at Western Kentucky and Purdue. 

How is the college football world responding to Wednesday's Jeff Brohm to Louisville news? Let's take a look at some of the most noteworthy reactions to the Cardinals' newest hire. 

"Louisville had someone pay them to take Satterfield then got Jeff Brohm to come back. Major W for Louisville," ASGI Guy tweeted following Wednesday's hire. 

"Scott Satterfield taking the Cincinnati job was the best thing that could've ever happened to Louisville football," Aaron Torres wrote. 

While many Louisville fans don't seem to be disappointed about their former head coach walking away, the same can't be said about fans of the Boilermakers. 

"Seems to be real then. Congrats to Coach Brohm on getting to go lead his Alma Mater! Thank you for everything you've done for Purdue and we wouldn't be where we are without you! A new era of Purdue football is on the horizon! And this time it's not because the last coach was bad!" one Purdue fan account said Wednesday. 

"Well there it is. The time finally came and Jeff is doing what’s best form him and his family. You can’t ever argue with that. Brohm took Purdue from the bottom of the Big Ten barrel to competing in the Big Ten Championship. But for now, a new Era of Purdue Football begins," another Boilermaker fan wrote. 

Brohm's first regular season game as head coach of the Cardinals will come next September 2nd against Georgia Tech at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
